Ahead of meet with US, N Korea stops nuclear tests, scrap test site 21.4.2018 The Tribune
Seoul, April 21 North Korea will immediately suspend nuclear and missile tests and scrap its nuclear test site and instead pursue economic growth and peace, the North's state media said on Saturday, ahead of planned summits with South Korea and the United States. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said his country no longer needed to conduct nuclear tests or intercontinental ballistic missile tests because it had completed its goal of developing nuclear weapons, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said. North Korea said that to create an "international environment favourable" for its economy, it would "facilitate close contact and active dialogue" with neighbouring countries and the international community.

Porsche executive arrested in connection with Volkswagen scandal 21.4.2018 The Tribune
Berlin, April 21 German police arrested a senior Porsche AG executive in the wake of raids this week to gather evidence allegedly linking the sports car maker to Volkswagen AG’s emissions scandal, prosecutors said on Friday. The massive raids on offices and factories used by Porsche, which is owned by Volkswagen, involved 160 police officers and 30 investigators from two German states, Efe reported. The potential involvement of Porsche could represent a significant widening of the emissions-cheating scandal that has cost Volkswagen more than $25 billion in fines, penalties, compensation for customers and legal fees. As investigators were sifting through piles of documents, confiscating mobile phones and copying computer drives on Wednesday, prosecutors ordered the arrest of Jorg Kerner, Porsche’s head of engine development, who they considered a flight risk, according to people familiar with the situation. The investigation also targets Michael Steiner, a Porsche board member in charge of research and ...
